have a big hole to fill. each new job, that was created last month is good news for the people who are back at work. and for the families that they take care of. and for the communities that they are a part of. but, our economy as a whole just isn't producing nearly enough jobs for everybody who's looking. we have always known that we'd have ups and downs on the way back from this recession. over the past few months the economy has experienced some tough headwinds from the natural disasters to spikes in gas prices to state and local budget cuts that have cost tens of thousands of cops and firefighters and teachers their jobs. the problems in greece and in europe along with uncertainty over whether the debt limit here in the united states will be raised have also made businesses hesitant to invest more aggressively. the economic challenges we face were not created overnight, and they are not going to be solved overnight. but the american people expect us to act on every single good idea that is out there. i read letter after letter from folks hit hard from this economy, and none of
news for the administration. here is the big question, where are the jobs? you see jobs started to go up in a better rate, but the last two months, very bleak. consider this, even if the economy added 125,000 jobs a month, 125,000 jobs a month, between now and the election next year, that would keep the unemployment rate flat lined, right around 9.2%. the president, if he wants the rate to go down needs dramatic improvement in the jobs climate and need it is quickly. one more here, pretty sobering if you look at it the government 14.1le million unemployed, half of them long term. add in those underemployed, people who can only find a part-time job, about 22.7 million people hurt and hurt badly by this economy. let's dig deeper, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and in new york where traders on wall street literally gasped when the report was released. jess, to you first, hard enough for the president, facing re-election, the unemployment rate is stubborn in the middle of this, trying to get a deficit reduction deal. you have reaction to the jobs report, release this, this
it. and that in a nutshell is why a lot of big, moderate players in this town led by president obama do like this bipartisan scheme. with 13 days until possible default, all eyes are on the gang of six senators, three republicans and three democrats. they met today with house democrats. can they craft a deficit deal that can pass congress? lawmakers ask gang of six democrat kent conrad. >> how does this work? where is it headed? >> reporter: like the deficit commission, like president obama, the gang of six has a plan that's balanced. gang of six democrat dick durbin. >> it does it by putting everything on the table. everything. spending cuts, entitlement programs and revenue. >> reporter: $3 trillion in spending cuts, including cuts in medicare and the like. $1 trillion in tax hikes. but not on most americans. >> we're actually reducing tax rates, both on the individual side and the corporate side. >> reporter: that's a move to win over conservatives, like house gop leader eric cantor. >> and so i don't think that raising taxes, increasing tax rates, is the answer. certainly not in

. the key sticking point is this issue of raising the debt limit, large enough, big enough, so that it gets us through 2012, gets us into the spring of 2013. right now, of course, the boehner bill and what republicans were supporting would have this debt limit come to another vote in the next -- >> at this point in time -- >> harry reid wants to do is simply figure out a way to satisfy the second round of deficit reduction, create a stronger trigger potentially, whatever he can come to, to get more republicans to support his way in order to get this debt limit passed 2012. i think he's going to come to an agreement. the question is, how big of an agreement is it? is it an agreement that barely gets the eight republicans he wants? or does it get 20 republicans and sends a strong, bipartisan message to make sure this thing doesn't get gummed up again in the house. >> does he have a dance partner in terms of a republican willing to negotiate? >> reporter: he's got a few dance partners potentially, but right now he's not working very well with mitch mcconnell. that's not clear. but don't be sur
the big fight's going going to be over the debt ceiling limit. that's where the hard negotiations are going to be put out. and then they will probably be given a new number, and they'll have to revisit that bill that they've worked on in committee and meet the new number. so if that's what happens, it's probably a good thing. host: so first things first. guest: look, here's what each department or each function of government is going to be getting, and then work out what you think you can get, the most bang for the buck, so to speak. host: let's get to calls for you. we're going to begin with a call from los angeles. michelle is a democrat there. you're on for david keating of the club for growth. caller: given that you made the comments about t republican candidate mitt romney has developed an unshakable reputation as a flip-flop per uses federal powers to coerce taxpayers, and tim pawlenty is hard to pin down, who do you like? guest: well, what the club for we haveohas been doing, published a series of white papers on many of the presidential candidates, all of those that have d

. >> reporter: but house speaker john boehner claims his debt limit plan has been revived after a big last-minute fix. republicans reworked the package and now it's projected to cut more. $917 billion over ten years. >> it is a test. this is a big step trying to get control of our deficit and our debt. >> reporter: in an interview with brian williams for sunday special "taking the hill, inside congress" boehner played down the loud opposition from some of his own members. >> mr. speaker, is it fair to say that you have a bit of a rebellion on your hands or do you feel -- >> i have a little bit of rebellion on my hands every day. it comes with the territory. >> you don't worry? >> never let them see you sweat. >> reporter: the speaker is getting heat from democrats too. more than 50 just signed a letter saying they would block his plan because it would force us once again to face the threat of default in five or six short months. majority leader harry reid wants to kill the boehner bill and replace it with his own. >> i'm disappointed. i care about john boehner. i think he's a good person.
is something that hasn't bottomed out as quickly as we expected. and so that's continued to be a big drag on the economy. we've had to revamp our housing program several times to try to help people stay in their homes and try to start lifting home values up. but of all the things we've done, that's probably been the area that's been most stubborn to us trying to solve the problem. >> mr. president, 27% of our questions are in the jobs category, as you can see from the screen over here. our next question has to do about jobs and technology. it comes from david, "tech and knowledge industries are thriving, yet jobs discussion always centers on manufacturing. why not be realistic about jobs?" >> well, it's not an either/or question -- it's a both/and question. we have to be successful at the cutting-edge industries of the future like twitter. but we also have always been a country that makes stuff. and manufacturing jobs end up having both higher wages typically, and they also have bigger multiplier effects. so one manufacturing job can support a range of other jobs -- suppliers and the re
in the company. to me, if we did that in a big manner a bold manner, then you create demand, demand comes up you put people back to work, that would tell the markets out there we are moving ahead aggressively and boldly, not shrinking, not retracting, but we're going to expand and grow and that then would stimulate further private investment system of that's why i say, we're on the wrong track. we're argue -- on the wrong track when we're arguing about these things. it's demeaning to me to see a president of the united states -- it's encouraging to me that the president realizes we're on the wrong track. i thought he'd be more bold. ron white gave a great speech on the senate floor the other day, and we need more people talking about it. that's why leo, you and your task force, are so important. we have to focus on putting people back to work. not reducing the deficit. that can come later. but to cut spending now is like putting leeches on a sick person. you're going to bleed them more and make them more sick. we have 500,000 people in the public sector lost their jobs in the last two years. do
